Abstract:

Sixty-seven workshop participants representing harvesters, managers and scientists from Canada and the United States gathered in Inuvik in April 1996 to discuss the Beaufort Sea beluga. Participants were to exchange information on recent research and monitoring, discuss inter-jurisdictional concerns, examine future activities by the petroleum industry, and consider future research directions. Twenty-three presentations were given at the workshop, addressing stock size, range and movements; stock identity; harvesting in different hunting areas of Alaska and northern Canada; harvest-monitoring programs; reproductive rates, age, disease and contaminants in the belugas; and finally, an overview of plans by the oil and gas industry. The stock appears stable and beyond the size indicated by the most recent index of abundance. The range of the stock is more than twice the size of that previously known. The genetic relationships between beluga of the Beaufort Sea, Alaska and the eastern Arctic indicate that Beaufort Sea beluga constitute a distinct stock, with some mixing of larger males among neighbouring stocks. The most pressing issue for the communities at this time is that of contaminant loads in the whales and the potential impacts of these on whale and human health.
